Comment: This version explains the association between number of children and disenrollment without requiring viewers to exponentiate
the log-hazard in their heads to assess the size and direction of that association.
The retransformation of the predicted annual total cost is necessary because our model is log-linear with the Ln of annual total costs as the dependent variable, and to simply exponentiate
the predicted logged total costs would result in a biased predictor.
Sum those differences over j = 1 through k, and exponentiate
to get the survivor function.
The precision required in a filtration marker, such as creatinine and cystatin C, for reliable GFR estimation maybe higher than for risk prediction because they are incorporated into equations which then exponentiate
We draw the log positive valuations for 5,000 individuals and exponentiate
